Spiced Mussel and Potato Broth
1 onion, chopped
1 thumb size of ginger, grated
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp turmeric
Half tsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp groundnut oil
1 large potato, peeled and diced
500g fresh mussels, washed and beards removed, discarding any that do not close after a sharp tap
Salt and pepper
1 - In a large pan, heat up the oil then add the onion. Cook for 5 minutes until softened and slightly coloured then add the ginger, garlic and spices. Cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes until fragrant.
2 - Stir in the potatoes and stir for 1 minute until covered in the spice mixture. Pour in the water and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are softened.
3 - Tip in the mussels, cover and cook for a further 5 minutes.
4 - Taste for seasoning. It may not need salt due to the mussels. Remove any mussels that have not fully opened.
5 - Serve in bowls with lots of fresh coriander and a spoonful of fresh yoghurt. A squeeze of lime juice benefits.
